First few steps

Last night Lucas took his first couple of steps. He wants to walk bad! Hes just not stable enough on his feet yet. He seemed pretty proud of himself after he did it :)

Yosemite, San Fran and Monterey!

So we just got back on Tuesday from our week long roadtrip to northern Cali. First stop was Yosemite! Wow is all I can say about that place. We spent a whole day there exploring and it cetainly was not enough. That park is HUGE! And theres so much that we never got to see. When Lucas gets a bit older I wanna go back and camp and spend a little more time there. Everything was so beautiful. Just like the Grand Canyon, pictures dont do the beauty justice. Here are a few photos.

It was a GORGEOUS day!!

Next stop was Sacramento! We went to visit some good friends of ours from Belgium. They are now living up there! Its so nice to have our closest friends from KB being so close again! We stayed there all weekend. Saturday we went to Old town Sac and sunday we just relaxed and watched the Ravens STOMP the Steelers :) I took some picures of oldtown sac that ill put on the picture website. Unfortunatly I didnt get any picures of us and our friends! I did get this one of Lucas and the girls with my phone though.

We had a great time visiting with them, and hopefully will get to visit again soon.

We left monday and headed to Monterey but made a pit stop in San Fran! We went to the natural science museum then did a little touristy things!

Standing in front of my childhood! haha

Then we headed down to Monterey. Monterey is such a cute little town on the coast. We went to the aquarium which was fun because Lucas loves fish! I realized this when we were home and went to the Pittsburgh zoo.

Before the aquarium we went to see some of the seals chilling on the rocks.

We havent done any kind of traveling since we went to San Diego last summer so it was nice to get out of the central coast for a little bit. It was a wonderful trip! Im pretty sure all 3 of us are pretty sick of the car for a little while though! ;) Dont forget to check out the rest of the trip pictures on the picture website!!

I have tons of video footage from August and September, hopefully Ill be able to get that together soon!

7 Months

The 3rd of each month seems to always roll around so quickly. Lucas and I took a 2.5 week trip to Md last month and had a great time visiting with family. He did very well on the plane again which made me very happy! Next week were going up to northern Cali to visit some friends of ours that we met in Belgium who are now back here!

So, lets see, some things about his 7th month include..
- He says Mama!
- His crawling has gotten much faster!
- When we clap his hands together he learned to open his fingers instead of keeping them in fists.
- When he stands up on things, he lets go and can stand there for a few seconds.
- He used to be okay playing quietly by himself, but he seems to now want to be with me alllll the time! Makes it kinda hard to get anything done haha
- Hes on 3 solid meals a day with nursing in between and ive stopped feeding him at night. He still gets up, but only once or twice. Thats nice compared to the 5 or 6 times a night it was the last month!
- Even though I cant feel or see any yet, im pretty sure he has more teeth coming.
- He prefers the dog toys over his.
- He is still a cuddle bug, which I enjoy :)
- Hes getting good at walking while holding on to things like the couch or the ottoman.

I think hes starting to look like a little boy and not a baby. He's growing up wayy too fast!!
